Zeus, the ruler of Mount Olympus and king of the gods; god of sky, weather, thunder, lightning, law, order, and fate; had held a banquet in celebration of Peleus and Thetis' marriage, them being the parents of Achilles. Eris, however, was not invited since she would make the party unpleasant for everyone - being the goddess of discord.

Eris was angered by the rude snub, of course, and arrived at the party with a golden яблоко from the Garden of the Hesperides, the word "Kallisti" inscripted into it, meaning "for the fairest". Three goddesses claimed the apple, they were: Hera (queen of marriage, women, childbirth, heirs, kings, and empires); Athena (goddess of wisdom, warfare, battle strategy, heroic endeavour, handicrafts, and reason); and Aphrodite (goddess of love, beauty, and desire). Zeus, reluctant to favor any of them as the fairest one, chose Paris (Trojan mortal) to judge the cases.

в общем и целом, общая the story ends with the beginning of the Trojan war.
